Pisa is an ancient city in Italy . It is situated in the north-western part of the country, in Tuscany, on the bank of the Arno River.

A little bit of history

The city Pisa has a rich history. It was probably founded in the 13th century B.C. During the Roman era, Pisa was the capital of the Mediterranean area. In the Middle Ages, it was an important trade port and one of the Maritime Republics. However, the former prosperity of the city came to its end when the port began to silt up. It was also a result of many lost battles. In 1405, the city Pisa gained Florence under its control, which encouraged local art and science. The University of Pisa was restored. One of its teachers in the 16th century was the famous local and renowned scientist Galileo Galilei.

Tourist attractions

In the 20th century, Pisa became a much sought-after tourist destination. The most famous monument is undoubtedly the Leaning Tower , which is located at the Square of Miracles (Piazza dei Miracoli) . There are other significant monuments at this square as well, some of which belong among the most important monuments in Italy. There is a cathedral (Dumo) , a Baptistery and a building called Camposanto Monumentale. Due to its many monuments, the Square of Miracles has been listed on the World Heritage List UNESCO since 1987. Other monuments in Pisa include the Piazza dei Cavalieri Square, the Santo Stefano dei Cavalieri Church, the Palazzo della Carovana Palace and the Santa Maria della Spina Church. Nature lovers should not miss the local botanic gardens Orto Botanico dell'Università di Pisa , which were created in 1544 and are thus the oldest university botanic gardens in the world. Today, the city Pisa has about 90,000 inhabitants.
